Our group of popular sleeper tractors as a whole brought just over 10% less money in January 2016 than January 2015. The only model to post an increase was the Kenworth T660, which came in just under 1% higher year-over-year. Keep in mind we are now defining “three to five year-old” as the 2012-2014 model years. See graph below for detail.

The T660’s performance was mainly due to a strong showing for four year-old (2013 model year) units this January.

Honorable mention should be given to the International ProStar, which only lost about 2% of its value year-over-year. This result is due to solid pricing for ISX-powered 2014 units, which bolstered the three-model-year average considerably. Older model years continue to perform similarly to previous months.

Otherwise, 2016 is shaping up as expected, with retail pricing lower than 2015, but healthier than wholesale and auction pricing. Stay tuned for further analysis early next week.
